Project Description

Project Description

Within the Twleil Waututh Nation and encompassed by North Vancouver, Destiny at Raven Woods comprises a 44-unit, luxury duplexes and two, 5-storey condo developments comprising over 200, 1 to 3 -bedroom units constructed over two, 2-level underground parkades featuring podium-top reflecting ponds. RAM’s geotechnical team directed a subsurface investigation involving excavation of 12 test pits and six auger holes. Following the subsurface investigation, RAM’s geotechnical team designed temporary excavation shoring for the perimeter of the parkades. During the construction phases of the projects, RAM’s geotechnical team carried out field reviews during regrading, bulk excavation, temporary shoring installation, foundation subgrade preparation, underslab gravel preparation, turbidity testing, backfilling and pavement subgrade preparation.

RAM’s Role

Phases 1, 2, and 3 (Phases 2 and 3 beyond photo) of the 250 unit, four storey, three building Seasons apartment development, founded over a two-level, shared, underground parkade. Geotechnical engineering services included foundation assessment, excavation shoring and underpinning design using pre-stressed, tied-back, reinforced shotcrete, sediment and erosion control, and retaining wall designs. Regular geotechnical field review services were provided during construction. Other services included:

  • Site Investigation
  • Excavation Shoring Design
  • Erosion and Sediment Control Design and Monitoring
  • Construction Field Reviews

Project Highlights
